Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 2 : Review and Swatches !!

It is summer when you sweat incessantly at 6 AM. And the dreadful summers are back in Chennai. Summer in Chennai is not a cause for celebration I guarantee you. But the least one can do is smother the lips in bright orange colors ;) 

Personally I am a fan of creamy glossy lipsticks. Then there are days when even the creamy lover in me longs for the bleed proof matte lipsticks. If you are in the lookout for a matte lipstick in orange at a budget friendly price, you have landed at the right page.

The Maybelline MAT 4 lipstick is a warm orange shade with red undertones that makes it look amazing on warm skin tones.

Though it is a matte lipstick, the application goes smooth and even. No patchiness.

The pigmentation is damn good. I need only a single swipe to cover my lips. But if your lips are very pigmented, you can run over once more for an even color deposit.

Since it is matte, I would urge you to apply a lip balm 10 mins before and wipe it off prior to application.

It settles to a matte finish within seconds of application and stays put for a solid 3 hours. On eating food, it fades out from the center of lips. So touch up is needed after food.

Starts drying out my lips after an hour so I keep applying a colorless lip balm at regular intervals.

It turns to a hot pink shade on my lips after sometime but all oranges turn hot pink on me :( 

I really love the color and matte finish of the lipstick. It is not neon-y yet brightens the face instantly. A great color for the Indian skin.

MAT 4 is redder and darker compared to MAT2.

P.S : I so want to own Lady danger and Vegas Volt from MAC but ended up picking up from some other color family this time. Will review that soon :)

Maybelline The Colossal Eyeliner Review

So here I am with more than adequate experience with the newly launched Maybelline colossal eyeliner. And I must say I am hooked all the way.

It used to be just my kajal and mascara till 2 months back. Eyeliner was reserved for days I felt awesome. Then I got the Hypersharp liner which I will review shortly. But suffice to say this colossal liner from the same brand has made me wear eyeliner everyday since the day I got it. 

Time for the formal review tadaaa.

Price : Rs. 450/- 

The eyeliner comes in the form of a pen with a sketchy (?) tip. The felt tip makes application really a breeze. One can make the liner thin/thick easily. The tip is not as fine as that of hypersharp but if you are someone who finds it hard to make thick/medium sized lines with the hypersharp, you would love this one.

The color is not jet black but is very well pigmented. You can build up the intensity without the eyeliner going flaky.

Staying power is 7-8 hours after which it starts fading but does not disappear completely :) I do not have oily lids so you might want to take that into consideration.

Overall I am impressed with this liner. So if you are someone who is not adept at doing the liner with liquid liners, give this a shot. I bet you would go gaga over this one ;) 

Lakme Absolute Kohl on the upper and lower waterlines, Maybelline Colossal eyeliner on the upper lashline and L'oreal Million Volume lashes mascara on the lashes work together great to make your peepers look "ah well beautiful" :)
